Cutting hair for women is a leap in faith unto themselves. I feel as if our hair defines us, letting it go is freeing. I received such care and understanding and a glorious haircut from Joseph.
He listened to me about my hair, length of it and dying it or not. It was such a wonderful experience, I told everyone I saw yesterday and posted a picture of Facebook tagging Joseph and Friends so you all can see! I think thats magical love and support, Just like I received at the salon!! As always, an appointment with Amber is like getting your hair done by your bestie Haley was perfect as usual. I'm sporting a new haircut and she made it look perfect. Went in for haircut.

Amber rocks!!! So meticulous and my blowouts w her last a ridiculously long time! Amber is very pleasant, professional and did a beautiful job with base, highlights, shampoo and blow dry on my shoulder length hair. I am so pleased to have found an expert to color my hair. It looks great! Thanks again, Amber, I will see you again in a couple of months. Nice atmosphere, and awesome service. The smell of Aveda products in the air doesn't hurt, either.

She is super sweet and does a great job with my hair.. She makes the whole experience enjoyable. The very best!! Joseph cut my daughters hair and did an amazing job. She has very long hair and she looked like she came out of vogue! Thank you. Heyley, at the Alpharetta location did a great job.

I had appointment for 3 pm but had to wait until 3. Sasha did good job with my hair cut and a color but i was very much disappointed with the wait time. We need to value the time of our customers. No wait. I got an appointment the same day I called. Elizabeth cut my hair the length I wanted, not more.

Service is always great. I've been booking appointments for several years at this location. Seeing Sasha every six weeks is like seeing an old friend! I love my cut and the great conversation! Amber did a great job filling in for my stylist Sousa. That is one of the things I love about this salon- you will always be in good hands. I've been to three of Joseph's salons and they are all not only beautifully and well done but the staff are friend,y and knowledgeable. I've been going to Joseph for about two years and every haircut is superb. He is the master instructor and I can't imagine going any place else.
The appointment was delayed due to the customer before me taking longer to complete than expected, but everything else was great. Nice salon with friendly employees, great complimentary tea and comfortable waiting area. My stylist did and excellent job on my shampoo, cut and blow dry. Best haircut I've had in years. Will definitely be going back. The atmosphere at the salon is very comfortable and employees are welcoming. Elizabeth is amazing! She is fun, friendly and very good at her job!!! Amber service is impecable! She is efficient, and very to accommodating to all your needs.
Eileen La Grassa. Amber is the best at highlights and hair color. I am so glad I have found her! It was my first time and Elizabeth made me feel welcome and did a great job listening to what I wanted. I will definitely be going back! The salon is bright and modern with a good flow.
Friendly and professional staff. Elizabeth and Amber consistently provide excellent service for both my college age daughter and myself! I had a cut and color at Joseph and Friends and it was great! Very knowledgeable and helpful staff, will definitely go back :. Despite challenges outside of their control at the location where my appointment was initially scheduled, all involved handled the situation professionally and efficiently. They contacted me and requested that I meet the same stylist at a different salon.
It worked out very well and everyone was great!
My stylist, Steve, did a great job. He is very thorough and detail oriented. He took time with me during the consultation period to discuss what I wanted and explained what my hair would do and what it likely wouldn't do! I greatly appreciate that!! I highly recommend. They are pricey but worth it. Absolutely have the best experience every time I set foot in here whether it's every week or months in between it's like I never left!
Elizabeth is awesome! Not only is she an excellent Stylist she is a very sweet person. I am very happy that I found her. Brooksy Dye. The staff members are always friendly, and Elizabeth gets my cut right every time. I have recommended this salon to family and friends and would recommend it again. Amber and Susan were fantastic! I have finally found a salon after a year of searching! Thank you both! As usual my experience was wonderful.
Amber is an excellent colorist. One of my favorite thing to do is to go to Joseph's to see Sousan to get have my hair done every month. It's a warm, welcoming environment with top of the line hair stylists. Hayley is the best! She is talented, creative, kind, and very knowledgeable. I know I can always count on her to get my pixie on point. Have never been so satisfied with my look. Thanks Hayley! Great atmosphere! My stylist Mitzi does a great job and makes it a pleasurable experience! Haley was amazing Excellent haircut by Laura!
Faye is always so patient with me as I try to decide what changes I want to make with my hair. She is very good at figuring out what I want, even when I can't figure it out myself. As a mom, my visit to the salon is a special time of relaxation. Faye always pampers me, and makes my "me time" that much more special. I so enjoy coming in to have my hair colored by Amber! She is a beautiful, talented, accommodating individual; what an asset y'all have in her! This is my 3rd time at Joseph and Friends in Milton. The second time I went to Elizabeth for a blowout and she did such a great job- so I went back to her for a cut and style for my 3rd visit.
I'm not really sure if I like the cut yet or not and I think that's because of how she blow dried my hair- not like the last blowout at all. It feels really dry and brittle at the end, not soft, no volume at the roots and it felt like she rushed it- not sure if she needed to get back to her other client who was getting color.
I definitely felt rushed. I'll go back here again because I had a great experience the first two visits but if I'm not happy next time I probably won't return. Excellent haircut and good service plus entertaining conversation. And she always tries to please. Love her enthusiasm. Always happy with how she does my hair. Another memorable visit with Amber who's aa knowlegable colorist. I truly look forward to seeing her every 5 weeks. She is an asset to your company. Incredible experience with sweet and talented Hayley! I have a fresh new look, and I have found a new stylist!!!!!!! Elizabeth knew exactly what my daughter wanted from cut to color!
Best experience we have had with her hair so far! We are VERY happy and have a new stylist!!! I had a hairdresser in Fayetteville, GA that was treating my hair for over 15 years. Until I met Elizabeth I drove over 2 hours every 2 weeks in order to get my hair treated. Elizabeth began treating my hair a few months ago and now the appearance of my hair is much healthier and prettier. Not only is she a fabulous hairdresser she is a very sweet young lady.
Elizabeth is my hairdresser for life! Amber is amazing! She knows what you like and she goes for it. Great personality! On time performance! Love the service!!! PAtsy does a great job at cutting and styling. She is very sweet And attentive. Great service!! I love going to get my hair cut. From walking through the door to when I leave, I'm given the best customer service.
I love my stylist! I can show her a few pictures and tell her what I'm thinking and she provides great insight and nails it every time!! Elizabeth rocks! I loved my experience at aveda. I was looking long for a nice fridnly clean salon and where I can trust people with my hair service and I'm god I found this, I will deff be coming back to this location.
I have always enjoyed my experience at Joseph an Friends! And my 12 year old daughter refuses to let anyone else touch her hair! The customer service is just Fabulous! We go to the Milton location. Thanks for making me feel so Pretty!!! Elizabeth is awesome. She has been cutting my hair for several yeats. Not only was a squeezed in for a same day appointment at the last minute, but I was given amazing service and attention to detail. It didn't seem rushed, my cut was tailored to my somewhat challenging hair type, and I can't wait to actually plan ahead and get my color done here as well.
It's so excited to have a quality salon that can cater to my Monday availability. That's SOOO rare! I highly recommend Elizabeth. Check out was easy and booked my next appt :. I had an appointment with Elizabeth, and I was referred by a friend. Unfortunately, when I rescheduled my appointment, it was listed for just cut, not color as well.
After consulting her schedule, Elizabeth thought she could do my color instead of a cut, as that was more important to me. Amazingly, Elizabeth was so efficient and juggled her clients so perfectly, without neglecting anyone, that she was able to cut and dry my hair as well!! I am so happy with my color and cut and especially the efficiency of the appointment. Elizabeth was creative with both her talent and her schedule. Hailey is awesome!!!!!
She is new yet so good!!! I have decided next time I'm getting some of this product she uses because no frizzies at all and my hair looks terrific! I recently went to the salon in Milton Georgia for the first time this past Friday. She cut my hair much shorter than I requested and I have huge chunks everywhere, one side is shorter than the other!! I am not sure what she was looking or what she was thinking when you look at the picture I showed her!!
I am totally embarrassed to go to work tomorrow with my hair looking this way!! A terrible, choppy and uneven haircut from an expensive and "experienced" stylist. I could have gotten a better haircut at Great Clips. The best haircut my son's received in 5 years!!! Glad I found you! Loved Haley!! She is awesome!! Loved the whole experience!!
My hair has found a new stylist!! My daughter and I visited Joseph and Friends for the first time recently and it was a wonderful experience. The staff and the stylists were super friendly and attentive. I had my haircut by Susan and couldn't be more excited with the results. I feel like I look years younger. She's a magician. My daughter has crazy long, long hair and decided to have it dyed a beautiful, exotic red. Her stylist was Hayley and I can't express enough how amazing this young woman is.
She was so enthusiastic, funny and kind, not to mention brilliant with her work. She is such an artist and my daughter's hair looks simply phenomenal. I highly recommend both Susan and Hayley. They are truly talented. Haley was amazing! After I showed her pictures of hair and described what I wanted, she gave me exactly that! I couldn't have asked for a better finishing product. She was also very fun to talk to! Great experience! I always come here and have Elizabeth do my hair. From cut to color to styling she is the best and I always leave pleased!! As always, Joseph was fabulous!
My spunky short hair cut is edgy, yet professional. He's my guy! Entire staff is courteous and friendly. Elizabeth is very pleasant and provided an excellent salon experience. My hair looks great. There is a nice special offer on the purchase of gift cards during July. Ask Sam or Kate at the front desk for more information Please accept my thanks and compliments of your staff member, Hailey. She was patient I was late , professional and very pleasant to be with.
She matched my color exactly and I will definitely return to see her for my next hairappointment. Haley not sure on the spelling was awesome and did exactly what I asked for! My stylist did a fantastic job on my color but was over 30 minutes late for my appointment. You only get one chance to make a first impression and her tardiness overshadowed the quality of service. Liz is the best!! She is an artist with color and a skilled stylist.

Anyone who is wanting some pretty blonde highlights , go see Hayley, she'll take good care of you. Faye is amazing. Her skill and attention to detail are unmatched. I recommend her to everyone I know! I'm so happy with her workmanship. It was awesome!! They then went over different strategies to achieve what I wanted.
I ended up doing full foil and a toner. It was a great experience and I'll definitely be back! Elizabeth is an awesome stylist. She is very talented, personable and enjoyable to be around. I would highly recommended her! Thank you!! My appointment with Faye was as fabulous as always.
She always makes my day and refreshes my spirit! The hair cut is usually great and the full treatment is what keeps me coming back. However, I have had problems with the management and scheduling. I've been double booked multiple times and bumped out of my time slot once. This time, management had a "meeting" that delayed my haircut nearly 30 minutes. After receiving multiple e-mails and texts for me to show up for my appointment on time; it's hilarious that I had to wait so long.
It was not a busy time of the day and the place was nearly empty. Because of this, my hair cut was rushed about 12 minutes instead of the usual and I did not receive my normal treatment. Even so Fay did a great job for the time allotted. Faye always does an excellent job with my hair. The staff is extremely nice and very personable. Amber and Sam are great - always a good experience going in here.
Elizabeth Johnson always goes above and beyond for me. She listens well and is always able to execute what I'm wanting. Faye is fabulous! Everyone who sees my cut is thoroughly impressed. She mixes her flair and style with her perfectionism ending in the perfect style!! I have and would recommend anyone to Faye! Had to have anther stylist blow it dry and clean up ears and hair left on clothes.
I had the best experience! Elizabeth is totally awesome!! I took in a picture of the cut and style that I wanted and walked out looking like the picture. I love my hair and I will be going back!! Book an appointment today! I promise, you will not regret it. They are the best!! Elizabeth always does a fantastic job!
She's fun, attentive, and detailed! I always look forward to my time with her, and my hair has never looked better! I was a little anxious because my former stylist had moved but she was kind enough and smart enough to leave behind recommendations for other stylists to her clients. I took her advice and was extremely happy and satisfied. I needn't have worried My experience with the stylist was good but my experience with front desk was not good. I was buying travel size products and the person at the front desk told me that if I buy 3 I can get 1 free. So I picked up 4 products and did the checkout.
When I saw the total amount it did not seem right, so I asked the lady to give me an itemized receipt. The moment I asked her that , she said she had made a mistake and had charged me for the 4 th product and will take it off. So it was clear that she knew she had made a mistake but she did not bring it up until I caught it. Then instead of crediting that amount to my card she ended up charging that amount again, which she realized and then took off both the amounts finally.
Mistakes happen, but I was not happy that she was not upfront with that. Faye was wonderful! Every salon needs a Sam Fabulous work Sam!! Thank you so much, Elizabeth! I saw Elizabeth for the first time and she did an awesome job! It as a great experience. Faye was amazing! Great customer service! I love coming for my appointment! Everyone is very welcoming and helpful! Elizabeth was wonderful She clearly knew what she was doing and the evidence in that is how my hair turned out.
Great haircut from Susan after a not so good one from another Aveda stylist. Thank you fixing my hair! My only reason for a 4 star instead of a 5 star is I haven't washed and styled it myself yet- a true test of a good hair cut for me. Love my cut!! The true test is if I can duplicate the style at home and I'm walking out of the house this morning feeling good!! Thanks Susan. Jamie is an incredible stylist; it's no wonder her expertise is on display at New York's Fashion Week.
She is a true artist, dedicated to creating the exact color that I was looking for. I only wish I had a before and after picture to share. She is the best! Elizabeth was fantastic! I have gone to the same hairdresser for 15 years but a friend recommended her and I decided to give her a try. I love the cut, the color and how she styled it. Everyone at the salon was friendly and helpful. They have a new lifelong client - a some family and friends who are also going to give her a try! Getting the free brow wax was nice.

Interesting blog. There are several in Philip Roth around the to word mark. Dio's most recognizable characteristics are his boundless ambition and his love of power. Abused by his father and having lived in the most miserable living conditions,  Dio set for himself the goal of becoming the richest, then the most powerful being on Earth. To do so, Dio used anything or anyone that he could in order to further his goals, disregarding any kind of morality that would restrain the range of actions available to him. Using either manipulation, seduction, or plain violence, Dio constantly sought to become more and more powerful.
Dio enjoys being in a position of power   and has repeatedly stated how great he felt being in a dominating position. On the contrary, Dio never tolerated that someone could stand up to him or equal him in power, and was several times enraged and deeply disturbed at the thought. Throughout his life, Dio has tended to surround himself with witless cronies and later minions, who were attracted by his natural charisma. Not thinking much of them at first, he then selected those he deemed as particularly evil, claiming that an evil person wasn't bound by rules such as honor and thus were stronger mentally.
This belief culminated in including the absorption of 36 souls of sinners, or, as he claims, particularly strong souls, to unlock a power greater than that of his Stand, The World. Naturally, Dio is an incredibly-selfish person, only looking over his own interest and overlooking those of others at best, trampling them on the ground at worst.
Due to his composed nature, Dio can and will manipulate and take from any gender, using any method, as long as the person suits his present desires. Since he is selfishly interested in their capabilities, however, Dio is the type who is incapable of loving another person wholeheartedly. Still, Dio stole the former's body and his friendship with the latter was proven nonetheless beneficial of a grander plan to further himself. When interacting with someone, Dio will constantly try to manipulate them and sway them into his side, using a veneer of gentleness and his natural charm to make people admire and like him.
For instance, he acted the model son and popular charismatic friend to Jonathan's father and entourage to better isolate him, and as a Vampire, his charisma only increased as he appeared as a charming mysterious individual. However, his natural arrogance would lead him to openly insult and belittle his enemies, notably disparaging their insignificant strength before his vampiric or Stand powers. Dio approaches obstacles and problems in a number of ways depending on the situation and his mood.
When he was human, Dio was careful and methodical in trying to break Jonathan's spirit and slowly poisoned George for a sizeable period of time, only being thwarted due to unlucky twists of fate. As a Vampire, DIO at first let his arrogance get the better of him and took a laissez-faire approach, only sending subordinates to kill the Joestar Group while he rested and recovered. However, his defeat by Jonathan taught him to be wary of the Joestar Family in its entirety, thus he would later ambush Jonathan and, during the events of Stardust Crusaders, send his minions to delay the Joestars as much as possible to recover strength.
During his final battle, his wariness, tactical acumen and arrogance would clash to make Dio alternate between meticulous approach and planning and reckless attacks. In Phantom Blood , Dio is ambitious, selfish, arrogant, callous and megalomaniacal, seemingly able to do anything to achieve his aims. His natural ruthlessness is exposed very early when plans to exploit the Joestar family despite them being kind enough to adopt him. These methods included: humiliating Jonathan in public sport fighting, ostracizing him from his friends,  and finally stealing Erina Pendleton 's first kiss to drive a wedge in their budding relationship.
Dio's lack of empathy is also apparent, since despite having lived for years with the kind Joestars, he never thought of them as anything more than obstacles, and is hinted to utterly resent the upper class he frequents. Dio had been maintaining a facade of a charming and agreeable person to everyone save Jonathan, yet never came close to anyone. At the end of the part, the only person Dio appreciated was Jonathan Joestar himself, begrudgingly acknowledging his valor as his archenemy  and "granting" him a painless death, and was even shocked to see him die.
Dio also sadistically changed a mother into a zombie just to watch her devour her own baby. When in a position of strength, he also tends to torment them further, such as sneakily sticking his thumb into Jonathan's eye during a punch. Dio shows a lack of restraint in his violence, and is prone to murderous outbursts even as far as his childhood, notably trying to stab Jonathan when he beat him up, and violently slapping Erina.
He is shown to be utterly enraged when someone stands up to him, which is the cause for his outbursts. He himself acknowledged that his anger was a weakness,  but would be all his life unable to truly control himself. Dio's personality could be explained by his poor childhood and the abusive relationship he shared with his father, Dario Brando. Speedwagon, however, rejected this as the cause of Dio's personality, claiming that Dio was simply born this way, and that his poverty had nothing to do with it.
True to that, Dio was already an immoral person but then openly relinquishes his humanity W in favor of becoming a vampire upon being cornered by the police. Nonetheless, Dio respects determination and said much to Jonathan that his determination was equal to his own, earning him the dubious honor of serving as Dio's new host, after Dio was reduced by Jonathan to a head.
Dio's potential for empathy is implied in both the manga and the anime, when Dio is shown to have killed his own father out of revenge for the abuse against his mother, rather than as a step in his scheme to rise in society. Dio has expressed hatred for dogs, considering them vermin. DIO does not appear frequently in Stardust Crusaders except towards the end, but is seen discussing various philosophies with Stand users he wishes to recruit, and with his already-loyal followers, particularly Enya the Hag who serves as his main adviser.
It seems equally likely that DIO does this to manipulate and persuade as that he believes what he says, but nonetheless acknowledges the power and valor simple humans can have, notably respecting one's willingness to die for his goal. Wishing to quickly dispose of the Joestars, he listened to Enya and was told that she'd already sent agents to deal with them, and quietly rested in his mansion to gain more strength.
Furthermore, DIO learned his lesson and stops underestimating his opponents, being particularly careful around the Joestar bloodline. He nonetheless sneered at other Stand Users' efforts to fight him, most notably Kakyoin's, whose discovery ended up being crucial in his defeat. This time, DIO is far more calm and collected. Maybe due to knowing that his Stand The World is far above anyone's reach, DIO is more tolerant of people resisting him, and didn't react to Polnareff's taunts and insults. He even seems to appreciate Hol Horse's insubordination, which confirms the mercenary's strength, and let him go try to assassinate Jotaro.
However, DIO is still callous about human life and killed anyone who would fail him, even Enya—who was, again, his closest adviser. The usually confident and cunning gambler Daniel D'Arby was driven to madness when he couldn't handle the pressure of possibly revealing DIO's Stand ability to Jotaro. True to himself, DIO is enjoying the fact that he is wielding the most powerful Stand in his organization, being unconcerned by the heroes' effort to discover his power as he thinks they are meaningless. When Jotaro reveals himself to be able to move within the stopped time, DIO is initially very distraught but recomposes himself quickly, devising other plans to get rid of Jotaro by exploiting his advantage.
The full scale of his insanity is visible when, overjoyed to have completely fused with Jonathan's body and being at full power, DIO declares that he was experiencing "the greatest high" and delightfully drills his index finger into his skull. His final speech exposes that he is still willing to use any way to win and despises any concept of honor or revenge, ultimately using a cheap trick to blind Jotaro momentarily. In flashbacks placed before the events of Part 3 , DIO demonstrates a burgeoning ability to be genuinely nice to another person in numerous conversations with Enrico Pucci.
Intrigued by Pucci, who let him be despite suspiciously hiding in a church, DIO healed his crooked foot, a kind gesture, and gave him the head of an Arrow , which would grant him his own Stand, Whitesnake. During these flashbacks, DIO is able to open up with him on multiple subjects, and confiding to Pucci that the priest could make him be at peace. Once daring Pucci to steal his Stand, to Pucci's refusal, DIO thanked him for his fidelity, and even admitted that he feared the thought of Pucci betraying him.
It is debatable how good a friend DIO truly was, considering Pucci's good-willed nature during his youth directly opposing his later evilness and zealotry. DIO also seems to have built that friendship to further his ambitions, which calls into question how sincere it was. It is implied that he wanted to use his Stand to create a perfect world for himself and a handful of subordinates.
He enlisted Pucci as his living "conscience", in case he would go crazy and veer "off track". The information below derives from a Light Novel not written by Araki.
